Last night, Madeline and I were reading one of the Bobbsey Twins books.  Do you remember these?  I had ever single one and read and re-read them as a child.  Nan and Bert, Freddie and Flossie.....those guys were the coolest.

Anyhoo.  We got to a part where Freddie is trying to solve the mystery and.... "his expression changed."

I asked Maddie if she knew what "expression" meant. 

Of course Mom!  Like, "Get out of town!"  That's an expression.

We talked about verbal expressions versus facial expressions and that's when she gave me her, 
thankyouverymuch expression.
